EDITORS’ NOTES

Double albums can sometimes signify a kind of doomed creative bloat but Scottish overachievers Biffy Clyro have long proved that they’re as comfortable confounding expectations as they are pounding eardrums. Totalling 20 tracks (hewn from a possible 40), Opposites has the quality to support its grand scope, whether its grabbing you by the lapels with bracing stabs of guitar (“Sounds Like Balloons”, “Picture a Knife Fight”) or packing tender, twisted lullabies (“The Thaw”, “Skylight”). A sonic odyssey that showcases the beating hearts beneath those tattooed chests.
